Goddess Anu Of Shrone - Poem by Francis Duggan

In poetry and song in story and in rhyme
The legend has lived through the centuries of time
Of Goddess Anu of Shrone her breasts pointing to the sky
The mother of the smaller mountains nearby.

Overlooking the Cork-Kerry border countryside
In legend her fame has travelled far and wide
Far from old Sliabh Luachra the traditional story is known
Of how Anu's breasts into huge mountains has grown.

Above the small fields far inland from Hibernia's shore
Overlooking the countryside around the Town of Rathmore
Stands the ageless Paps of Shrone as time quite as old
The legend of their Goddess Anu has often been told.

Legend is legend as the more cynical do say
But you make out of this whatever you may
That in Shrone in East Kerry far inland from the sea
The giant breasts of a Goddess in mountains you can see.
